quote, with ohio leaning his way, obama needs to win only 15 more electoral votes. while mitt romney campaigns against president obama, his staff is busy campaigning against the polls. >> look, ohio, there's still 42 staff is busy campaigning against the polls. >> look, ohio, there's still 42 days to go. we are in there by any stretch inside the margin of error in ohio. we trust our internal polls. i don't make any campaign decisions based on what i read in the "washington post". >> needless to say romney's staff would be happy to get into the specification of what their polls say or don't say if they had a poll showing mitt romney winning something but they obviously don't have any such polls. rush limbaugh's audience is of course distraught about what the polls are telling them. but rush is ready with an explanation for all of the polls. not including of course the fox news poll showing president obama with a significant lead. >> the purpose of the people right now, most of them doing these polls, they're trying to make news, not reflect it. they're all democrats. they're all liber
great john elway. president obama is taking the personal approach to nail down votes. >> this is barack obama. >> reporter: and like romney, the president sees this debate as a chance to talk to america. >> it's a choice between two different paths for this country. it's a choice between two fundamentally different visions for our nation. >> reporter: the president has a lead in all nine of the key battleground states, including ohio, which begins early balloting today. >> romney's task is difficult because he has to redefine himself as well as redefining the election. >> reporter: an election only 35 days away but still far from over. and the first debate is on the domestic issues that are defining this election. >>> ryan moore in washington. thanks. >>> the candidates for the u.s. senate seat in massachusetts, scott brown and elizabeth warren, debated for the second time last night. the two were combative as they staked out opposite issues from jobs and bringing troops home. david gregory from "meet the press" as moderator, they clashed over brown's claim of partisan independence. >>
they were going to have the attitude we just want to vote the incumbent out. they looked at president obama in 2012 and they said we've got the same thing this year. we need to be a generic protest vehicle. we need to be as inoffensive and nonspecific as possible to swing voters. that strategy is good for 45, 46, 47% of the vote. it has not gotten them higher all year. there's no reason to think that that strategy alone is going to left them over the top. now you've got republicans that are starting to pan he can e romney has choices, he can start saying something more affirmative but if he wants to appeal to swing veeters, he's going to irritate his base. or he's going to alienate the swing voters. i think they're just finding out now it's not getting them quite where they thought it would. >> let's listen to the advise bill o'reilly has for mitt romney about how to handle the tax details question. >> i would say listen, with all due respect, scott, i can't tell you right now. because it's not fully formulated what i can do in that area. i don't want to hurt the housing industry, i don't w
silver fraufts that on november 6th president obama will within 309 votes. today paul ryan picked off the romney campaign's three day pus tour through ohio, where a new pole of ohio likely voters shows president obama leading by 5 points. no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. mitt romney will join the ohio bus tour tomorrow. he and paul ryan will be then followed by the democratic national committee's own ohio bus tour which will stop in the same cities. the dnc's bus tour is called mitt romney writing off the middle class tour. joining me now from the dnc bus tour in columbus ohio, former ohio governor, ted strik land. and from new york, krystal ball. >> fewer americans are working today than when president obama took office. it doesn't have to be this way. if obama would stand up to china. obama had years to stand up to china. we can't afford four more. >> governor, your reaction to that romney ad? >> well, i mean, it's a joke. everyone knows that president obama has done more than any previous president to make sure that our trade laws are fairly enforced. and
fraufts that on november 6, president obama will opinion 316 votes and mitt romney will within 222. and president obama's chance of winning the election is at 81.9%. the highest of this campaign cycle. joy reid, i will bet you $10,000 that we are going to see a piece of that secret tape, about the 47% in most of the obama and team obama campaign ads for the rest of the way. >> it is going to be on an endless loop from now until election day. that is for sure because it's so effective. in a way democrats should thank him. he ripped the veil off something like 30 years republican fooling working class people into thinking you know what? we may be the party of management and the democrats are the party of labor but we really get you. he's showing they don't not only get working class people they don't seem to like them very much. i think mitt romney is like the guy who has to show up at a dinner party after being overheard insulting half the guests. a lot of people in the crowd are 47ers, he looks awkward and out of place. >> joy speaks for me. >> the great thing about where we are is
or a teacher who makes 50,000. don't boo. vote! >> president obama won virginia in 2008, but the state went solidly for the republican candidate in the 10 previous presidential elections. >>> there are six more days of campaigning out there before president obama and mitt romney have their first presidential debate. >> there is a possibility we could see some severe weather this evening. topper will have the latest when we come back. >>> well, if you're north or west of town, you may be getting a little sign of the tough weather out there, top. >> it was 85, kind of a touch of summer today. well, we've got summer thunderstorms. in fact, most of the metro area is under a severe thunderstorm watch until midnight. let's start with that. we'll show you the watch. it covers just about everybody. it doesn't quite go up to frederick county, but it's not like the storms know to stop at the county line. it goes all the way to the bay in anne arundel county, prince george's, the district and southern maryland. the darker yellow, those are severe thunderstorm warnings which cover a good portion of fau
you poll of polls as we call it in ohio and florida. ohio likely voters 51% said they'd vote for obama. 44% for romney. and the poll of polls september 16th through the 24th in florida, 50% said they'd vote for the president, 45% for mitt romney. why do you think it is that mitt romney doesn't seem to be resonating in these critical states at least so far? >> well, i think he has three or four big challenges. one is that for a long period the obama campaign dramatically outspent romney in resiesly those states driving home their image of who romney is. the second is that the romney campaign is yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear crisp way the difference between romney and obama. and i think that frankly is a problem. and there's an ironic third problem. both these states have republican governors. both these governors have been doing the right things, the things mitt romney believes in. and the campaign doesn't seem to be able to pivot and say, you know, john kasich's doing the right stuff here in ohio and i want to take john kasich's model to wash
is it in ohio? >> i need you to find people that went out there and voted for barack obama and convince them to join our team. together we'll strengthen this country and make sure it provides the jobs we need and keep it the hope of the earth! but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. mom's smartphone... dad's tablet... or lauren's smartphone... at&t has a plan built to help make families' lives easier. introducing at&t mobile share. one plan lets you share data on up to 10 devices with unlimited talk and text. add a tablet for only $10 per month. the more data you share, the more you save. at&t. bill: we're now seeing governor romney and paul ryan speaking at a rally there. that is westerville, ohio, near columbus, ohio, franklin county, right in the middle of the state. yesterday romney slamming the president on lib

to the romney campaign >> today iowa game the first swing state to start the voting for the president of the united states. the polls he showed president obama up eight points in that state. now suffolk university poll shows the president at 46%. the president reminded what was said. >> i have always said that change takes more than one term or more than one president. it takes more than one party. i can't happen if you write out half the nation before you take office. >> i don't know how many of you out there will be voting for me. but, i'll be fighting for you no matter what. i'm not fighting to create democratic jobs or republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> today the obama re-election campaign released it's third add hitting mitt romney for insulting and lying about 47% of americans. >> 47% of people will vote for the president who are -- believe that they are victims believe the president who are -- believe that they are victims believe that government has the responsibility to care for them and believe that they are entitled to health care and housing and you
it is not due to the early voting program. but can he get ads on the ear pressed up to compete with the obama onslaught? neil: at the convention nassau lot of obama adds running six slate -- six /1. but they did seize the early initiative and but wonder if you are sitting on a lot of cash could you do not hedge your bets to flood the swing states with a lot of advertising? >> the obama campaign has been a mobilizing for a while. mitt romney is still in persuasion territory to convince middle-class voters he has a plan. i was no higher this weekend at the obama is already saying start voting. they are farther ahead. neil: they tried to seize the moment may be that is the good idea but what is the strategy lonesome and a vote early? in 1981 that of 30 now it is one out of three or likely to out of three. what is the strategy? >> to make the closing argument were hit voters the hardest as absentee voting begins. the president is stronger they have done a before. couple sides are doing it and pushing extremely hard and tracking it. this is not one side is doing and the other is not. i would tell
say, i think i'm going to vote for obama, that vote is not strong or locked in. some of those numbers that you guys were putting up just a little bit ago about the economy, and the barack obama and romney being close on handling of the economy and the state of the economy, i think a lot of those voters are sitting there waiting for one of these candidates to make a case to them why they would do a better job with the economy. i think they're waiting for mitt romney to explain to them why barack obama has failed in his handling of the economy. jenna: one of the things you wrote about in your editorial you say politicians, no matter what party, they see the economy in two ways. as a personal piggybank or as a mystery and neither will discuss it in public. what do these two candidates do during the very important debates, the first one starting next week? >> obviously barack obama does not want to talk about the economy while he was president. his one word explanation for his problem is, bush, george bush caused all of these problems. the, unfortunately, mitt romney is in some way saying
president obama and governor romney plan to woo undecided voters days ahead of early voting in the buckeye state. arthel: president obama and governor mitt romney descending on the battleground state of ohio today, the president taking his message to college students at two state universities, while governor romney targets work-class voters in major metropolitan areas. less than a week before early voting begins in ohio where does each candidate stand. bob cusack is the managing editor for the hill. good to see you. which candidate would you like to analyze first you pick. >> president obama, he has the lead in ohio and that has picked up. i don't think that is surprising because last week was the worst week for the mitt romney campaign. can romney still win ohio? yes. he's going to have to change the dynamic a little bit. why is ohio so important, the last eleven presidential elections if you win ohio you win the presidency. that's why these two guys are fighting over the state and down the stretch they are going to be in ohio a lot. arthel: let me jump in with specifics here, bob. as you
was this, if the election were held today, for whom would you vote? you see the numbers. 53% answered barack obama. 43% mitt romney. a ten-point spread in crucial ohio. obama is beating romney, double digits on national security, health care, on taxes, crisis management and overall foreign policy. double digit leads in that poll just released today. one of our go-to guys, peter hamby joins me from washington, one of our political reporters. peter hamby, give it to us bluntly. how bad is this particular poll for mitt romney? >> it is it is very, very bad brooke and one number you mentioned there, obama holds a 25-point lead among women which is a big gender gap we have seen in any poll between the two this cycle. ohio is the linchpin of any white house strategy. romney can still do it, though the needle he's threading becomes very, very thin if he does lose ohio. the question the political people are asking today is this lead actually ten points? or is it closer to what we have seen in previous polls, which is seven, six, five, four perhaps point lead for barack obama. a lot of republi
,000. don't boo. vote! >> the latest polls do give president obama an edge in virginia. the state varies 13 electoral votes in the election. >>> the fans who take the metro to nationals park for the playoff games won't have to worry about the subway shutting down if the game goes to extra innings. a company known as living social, you've heard of them, they've offered to pay the deposit metro requires to keep the trains running for any playoff games that run late. that deposit amounts to about $30,000 an hour and the company will recoup part or maybe all of it depending on how many fans take the metro home. >>> are you ready for some football with real deal genuine mccoy professional referees? well, after three weeks of agonizing officiating that seemed to get worse, negotiators for the referees union and the nfl reached an agreement. the replacements made several controversial calls, but monday night's ruling that turned what looked like an interception into a touchdown, that caused a national uproar. >> you never want to see a game end like that or end on a controversial play. >> certainl
% of them would vote for governor romney as opposed to only around 30, 32% that would vote for president obama. > > what about contractors? you're finding that as full- time employees are dropping, those numbers are dropping, that in fact 1099 people, the contractors, are increasing. > > right, certainly some of what we're seeing, if there are jobs that are being added, or at least keeping us from dropping further, is that we're seeing more independent contractors added as opposed to full-time workers. that creates a challenge for people, because you don't have the comfort of a long-term, stable job. you don't often have the health insurance. you have to pay in for your own social security benefits. it's more challenging for the work force. > > what is the one thing that small businesses would like to see - outside of a new president - to really give them the kickstart they're waiting for? > > the number one thing we're hearing from small businesses is not easy to fix, and that is they need demand. they need more demand for the services and products that they sell. > > and that's sort of
told the crowd they should vote for obama in a very madonna-like way. >> you all better [ bleep ] for obama, okay? all right. >> okay. so we have a black muslim in the white house. and in one token endorsing the president, saying vote for him. saying we have a black muslim in the white house. which is not true. the president is a christian. that issue seems to not die no matter what the facts seem to be. anyway, causes controversy. now they're debating in the blogosphere if she is sarcastic or misinformed about the president's religion. madonna in the headlines. >> just desperate for attention at this point in her career. not desperate, lady gaga, some photos spread out on the blogosphere and news organizations claiming she gained some weight. responding on littlemonsters.com, her website, admitting bulimia and anorexia is something she suffered with since 15. on the website posts pictures of her, dressed down like that. she says be brave, celebrate with us, perceived flaws. she posted a series of half-naked images, alongside writing word that people kind of embrace the flaws. >
november 6 and the early voting track, where what the candidates say and two in these battleground states ask influence votes being cast right now. both candidates have traveled to early-voting states to implore voters to cast their ballots. barack obama will be preparing for debates in nevada, where cbs expects 65% of vote voters to vote early. his presence in the state of nevada stirs up activities for democrats who then will try to arck up their voters early. if a campaign can get lots of voters to vote early, then the campaign can spend its time and resources in other battleground states with other voters. >> pelley: these early votes aren't counted until election day. i wonder how do the campaigns know how people are voting early? >> the secretary of state in most of the early voting states hports daily the names of those who voted-- not how they voted, just that they did. what the campaigns then do is match that against the lists of voters they've identified over the years. so if mrs. jones has asked for an early ballot but isn't on that daily report, the campaign will contact her.
vote for barack obama and joe biden. >> i was there. you electrified the place. they all say why do we have the 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton run and be president for the next 30 years? >> we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president. you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked, i think, well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third term. when he died shortly after being elected to a fourth term and people didn't really know a full measure of his health challenges, the 22nd amendment passed. it's ironic at a time people thought the democrats had a lot in the white house. then it was, then after the last 50 years, the republicans had it more than the democrats. but, i think there's still an argument for saying that eight years, certainly eight years in a row is enough. you don't want this -- you don't want to run the risk of sclerosis in a democratic society. you don't want to give the idea that any country, particularly this one as big and diverse is dependent on any one person. look at the dictators that ha
for the race for president tonight. new polls show president obama ten points up now on mitt rolled romney in ohio. that is key battleground state. he has moved into the leans to obama column. that gives him 255 electoral votes. 270 are needed to win. both candidates campaigned in the buckeye state today. the president seized on the momentum linking romney to his comments that 47% of americans are victims who depend on the government. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims that never take responsibility for their own lives. as i travel around ohio and look out, i don't see a lot of victims. i see hard working ohioans. >> near cleveland, romney tried to repair the damage from his comments. he expressed empathy for out of work americans and claimed his policies would help them get back to work. >> when you cut through the words, you can look at the record. when you see policies that have not created the jobs america needs, you know it's time to choose a new leader, get a new coach, get america growing again. >> history says ohi
. and this is not a fact that is lost on our president mr. obama stumping there yesterday. >> i still believe in you. and if you keep on believing in me, i want you to register to vote by october 9th. i want you to start voting next tuesday, october 2nd. >> so paul steinhauser joins me now from washington, d.c. paul, let's go right back to iowa. everything begins in iowa. and we've got a recent poll that shows president obama has a seven point lead in iowa. so here's the guess. he wants to gets a many early votes in the bank in that state as possible and then move on with his person and his money. >> exactly. everybody knows iowa's that first state that votes in the primary and you caucus calendar and it's family us for that. it was the state that gave president obama -- senator obama his first victory. and he won iowa four years ago in the general election, considered a battleground state. both campaigns really going after it. four years ago goi, 545,000 iowans cast ballots early. and that was almost double what they did eight years prior. so early voting is important in iowa as it is in a bunch of
, however, in the obama campaign again, pinning its hope on young votes. the president has listed popular actor kal penn to help him boost the turnout of all those young people. it was the young folks who helped him win in 2008. kal penn is joining us from los angeles. kal, good to see you. you were really busy. you were at the dnc and running around all over the country here. you and some other folks, you have been in and out of the white house as sometimes you are an actor. sometimes you are an type offist here. what's the biggest challenge right now to make sure they show up to the polls? >> that's a good question. the biggest chal inc., i think is for first-time voters. if you just turned 18 or if you moved over the summer, making sure that people are properly registered and know where to go. we created a couple of web sites and got a vote.org -- got to vote.com or got to register.com. that's designed for no matter who you are voting for, at the end of the day, making sure that if you just turned 18 or if you moved, you know how to register and where to vote. i would say that's probab
society, you should vote for barack obama and joe biden. >> you electrified the place and they all say why do we have this 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton just run again and be president for the next 30 years. >> well, we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president, and you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked i think well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third time, but when he died shortly after ingurer peoe dn' hisenge hhe n t pass. it's ironhat the22nd amendmt paed at me when ople thoht the democrats haa lo then i was,n after in the last 50 years, the repuanshad oo thillf ei s,year eightears i a rows o rĂ³,eros tse dictators that have been deposed in theastew years ad t weoung dd t sothing go, andy just kind of outstayed their wel. so i love the life i have now. i like helping the president. i like helping my country. mteut ied in tics like what i'm doing. i think on balance, the system we have is better than the no limits. maybe some day, the rules will be changed so if you can serve two years and lay out
-to-life. she voted for awful obama's big spending. so the contrast, i think aiken in fact if you are in any way a moderate or conservative he's closer to your values she is. >> bill: the state of the race for governor romney, how is he doing? >> he's got to become more aggressive, become clear, and stick to issues in a firm way. they've allowed the national media to define this campaign for 2 1/2 weeks, and that is an enormous disadvantage if you're a republican. i mean, republicans in the general election have to wake up every morning and say, okay, the obama team includes virtually every reporter i'm going to meet. and you've got to campaign in that context. so you've got to be so clear and so consistent that you reach beyond them. if you don't do that, you'll stay in permanent trouble. >> bill: many people look at debate as being probably the linchpin for this race. do you agree? >> yes. i think in the first debate -- my newsletter at human events coming out tomorrow will walk through this. i think at the first debate, romney has to come across as capable of being president, as a legitimate
high level of african american, latino, and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod told fox, "public polls are widely variant in their sampling and methodology so it's hard to case when they all point in one direction they're all wrong, but we are planning for a close race as we always have." another democratic strategist offered this assessment -- >> the race isn't over. look, this thing can move back and forth three or four times between now and november 6th. if i'm romney, you try to create that momentum. he saw a sign to do it. >> of the eight presidential races in the past 10 where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, the average of the comebacks was roughly 5%. in some cases it was a debate that moved the needle. harris? >> mike, thank you of the let's go to syria where the u.n. is estimating more than 20,000 citizens have died in the uprising against the government in the past year and a half. [gunfire] >> obviously you can hear the gunfire as fighting between the rebels and government forces in aleppo intensifi
are on this state. >> florida matters, that is what we are going to be told over and over again. 29 votes. it is a big state that could make all of the difference between obama and romney. all of that is true. but who cares? or to put it more precisely, are we missing the bigger picture for florida and the rest of the united states? which is that this country has become ungovernable. its politics are poisonous. miami dade colleges the biggest in the nation. 175,000 students. all of them called on the streets in this massive voter registration drive which comes at the end of months of court battles over access. what i need you need? how far in advance can you do it? poorer voters are less likely to get to the polls on time. folks think florida republicans are fighting dirty. >> the efforts have come from republicans. in essence, you have the fact of suppressing the vote. >> that is what you see the purpose is? >> exactly. >> that is a fundamental issue at the heart of american democracy. if you think people are trying to stop their opponent's voting. >> extremely self. especially when the
to 35-year-olds. those that had hope and dreams who voted for obama four years ago. they're seeing their economic futures decimated. there is a lot of people look at the overall picture, foreign policy, domestic policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated att
